They included fabric gingerbread men tree decorations, hedgehogs out of unwanted books, pickles and chutneys from school grown produce, snowmen/women from socks, Christmas tree decorations and edible treats, crackers, biscuits and snowman pegs.
Lewis, in Year 6, organised his own stall. He has been busy making handmade wands all year.
Reception children made festive playdough, coconut burfi and a personal tree decoration.
